Yes, fine. We should also tell what is new (AIF of course!, boot device
detection, ....) and what we like to have most tested. This were IMHO:
* time/timezone setting with UTC and localtime
* If the boot device is fine detected during archiso boot hook
* grub bootloader install
* install with usb images, if the USB chipsets are detected (or if we
have a massive problem according to FS#15376)
* general aif handling, workflow...

Test period is relative short (we want to release latest on 09. August)
